Daily in Your Presence - Jan. 8

Day 8


"I am the good shepherd;

I know my sheep and my sheep know me."

John 10:14

My child, you may think you know where the pastures are greener. At times you may even try to sneak under the fence or walk another path. But as your good shepherd, I know your name. And I will never stop looking for you and calling you back. You may not understand My reason for boundaries, but the gate is there to protect you. I will feed you with nourishing food—not just for your body, but for your soul. I will give you rest, refreshment, and joy for your journey. Stay close, because I am all you need.

Wherever I go—up steep mountain paths, through the deep valleys and green pastures, or around still waters—You walk beside me, refreshing my spirit and restoring my soul. If I stray, You pursue me until I can rest safely in Your arms again. What a wonderful shepherd You are!


You can't hear the shepherd's voice if you're always following the wrong sheep.
